  • This has now become a bigger safety issue. 4 months later the trees are more overgrown and resting (in the wind scraping) along the roof tiles. I would appreciate someone coming to look at this ASAP before my roof is damaged further.

  • This has become worse again and the noise when the trees scrape along the roof tiles is awful. Please sort this before my roof is further damaged.
